Feature: Spotlight on… Techno producer Alan Fitzpatrick

Having enjoyed a rapid ascent since his emergence as the new kid on the techno block in the latter half of 2008, Alan Fitzpatrick now enjoys a high status as a universally respected and in-demand producer and DJ who has succeeded in carving out a recognizable musical niche for himself within the ever-expanding genre of techno. Buoyed by the whirlwind success he has enjoyed over the past six years, Alan Fitzpatrick began 2014 at the top of his game, brimming with the confidence you would expect from a talent who is recognized globally as one of the most influential Techno artists of the moment.

His intuitive sense of what will move a crowd that inspires Fitzpatrick’s own productions has seen successes for tracks such as ‘Skeksis’, ‘Always Something For Nothing’, ‘For An Endless Night’ and ‘Prometheus’ released on the legendary Drumcode label, these powerfully demonstrate the range of Fitzpatrick’s inventiveness in creating universally popular techno records that stand out from the norm. Whether he is adding diva-like vocals to cavernous beat workouts; fusing emotive chord sequences with his trademark heavy-funk sound or blending Jungle beats and Old School basslines with barnstorming Techno dynamics, Alan Fitzpatrick knows how to move the dancefloor. Fitzpatrick’s studio output doesn’t stop there, he has remixed and collaborated with many other techno heavyweights such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch, Joseph Capriati, Bedrock’s John Digweed & Nick Muir, Slam, Joey Beltram, Dustin Zahn, and Joel Mull to name but a few. Fitzpatrick’s dominance of the techno scene in recent years have seen his productions regularly feature high placement in Beatport’s techno Top 100 chart.

Fitzpatrick’s trademark sound of tough, hooky grooves and incendiary beats giving big-room sound sees him draw crowds globally on a regular basis. Want to hear why? Check out his set recently placed at number 3 in Amsterdam’s Beatclub top 50 at the Drumcode Studio Sessions. After seeing Alan Fitzpatrick at Fabric London, Amsterdam’s Gashouder during ADE and Berghain at last’s years Drumcode Total night in Berlin, I can’t wait to see what he’ll bring to Bournemouth on the 16th of May for Shake Underground’s night at The Winchester. I’ll also be catching up with him there so keep a look out for my review to find out a bit more from Alan himself. You can purchase tickets for the event here.
